Dusty Springfield- Remembering a 60’s Icon

It was 15 years ago today that the world lost one of the most iconic female singers of the 60’s. Born Mary O’Brien but known professionally as Dusty Springfield, she was famous for her sultry, smoky vocals, bouffant platinum blonde hair, heavy panda-style eye makeup and evening gown attire.

Dusty’s career spanned nearly 40 years and transcended musical genres such as pop, R&B, soul, folk, country and dance.  She is considered one of Britain’s greatest divas.

With legendary songs such as I Only Want to Be with You, Wishin’ and Hopin’, You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me and Son of a Preacher Man, Dusty’s unique voice will never be forgotten.

Dusty Springfield lost her battle with breast cancer on March 2nd 1999- just 6 weeks before her 60th birthday and only 2 weeks before she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

In tribute of this iconic diva, why not sing Son of a Preacher Man in the style of Dusty Springfield today!
